Description:

On offer from our personal collection is this graceful hand-woven basket with footed base from the Ifugao peoples of the Philippines. Used for storing rice, such baskets, known as 'ulbong', are a single-rod coiled construction of bamboo. It's believed their curvaceous shape has been inspired by ceramic vessels of China. Quite heavy & durable, the basket is beautiful in form & function. Its slightly uneven shape is a testament to its hand-crafted quality. A marvelous weave with superb workmanship & detail.

Overall condition: In good vintage condition, we believe the basket dates from the 1960s or earlier. Beautiful accent piece.
